Deadname/Othername 

So here's a thing, I'm pretty non-binary and I really have two sides to me, at least at the moment. What I on some level consider my "deadname", really isn't very dead? Is there a descriptor that encompasses the perhaps-not-terrible lingering male remains of one's previous identity?

Folks I'm going with "yestername"; it doesn't imply anything other than temporal precedence and sounds kinda cool. ☺️

@andi gonna dispute the "kinda" in this sentence

@andi more mundane “old name” or “previous name”

@zensaiyuki Honestly that extra syllable totally kills "previous name"

@andi could go newspeak with it.
unname
doublename
plusname
doubleplusname
